6 Pedestrian Facilities Infrastructure consists of Sidewalks, curb ramps, & streetscaping Street intersection treatments (crosswalks, curb extensions, signals, medians, etc.) Multi-use trails play vital role in accommodating pedestrians Regional trails Local, street-adjacent trails Local off-road trails 6

7 Biking & Walking Trends Will reiterate trends from Travel Behavior Inventory Include recent updates from federal, city, and/or state data reports More people actively walking & biking for transportation and recreation More biking occurring in winter months 7

8 Biking & Walking Trends Pedestrians overrepresented in region s traffic fatalities FHWA emphasis on ADA compliance Title II requirements for public agencies with self-evaluations or transition plans 8

9 Regional Bicycle System Inventory Regional Bicycle System Mileage Summary Type On-Street Off-Street Undefined Total Bikeways Trails Existing 1,878 2, ,908 Planned 1, ,013 2,865 Total 2,910 2,850 1,013 6,773 9

10 New Developments Bicycle Infrastructure Protected separated bikeways are being planned and implemented by cities and counties Minneapolis Amended Bicycle Master Plan with Protected Bikeways Update (2015) Goal to construct 30 miles by 2020 Saint Paul Amended city Bicycle Plan to include the downtown Capital City Bikeway (partly constructed) Complete 4-mile loop of Downtown to be implemented with connections to other bikeways 10

12 New Developments Pedestrian/Bike Data Collection MnDOT s Bicycle and Pedestrian Counting Initiative Training Permanent monitoring stations (10-12 in Twin Cities) Encouragement to do automated counts equipment loan program Published a data collection manual to supplement the federal Traffic Monitoring Guide 12

13 Where are we headed? Bicycle & Pedestrian TPP Planning Framework

14 TPP Planning Framework Goals Transportation System Stewardship Safety and Security Access to Destinations Competitive Economy Healthy Environment Objectives (Bike/Ped-related Only) Preserve and maintain bike/ped system in a state of good repair Reduce crashes & improve safety for bike/ped modes Increase share of trips taken using biking or walking Improve bike/ped options for all ages & abilities Improve bike/ped access to job concentrations Invest in bike/ped infrastructure to attract and retain businesses and residents Reduce air emissions from transportation sources Increase availability and attractiveness of biking & walking to encourage healthy communities & car-free lifestyles Leveraging Investments to Guide Land Use Focus growth to support full range of multimodal travel Encourage local land use/design to integrate all modes 14

15 How will we get there? Bicycle & Pedestrian Investment Direction

16 Current TPP Regional Bicycle Trans. Network (RBTN) Goals Establish an integrated/seamless network of on- and off-street bikeways Provide vision for a backbone arterial network for daily bicycle transportation Encourage cities, counties, parks agencies, and the state to plan and implement future bikeways 16

17 Current TPP RBTN Guiding Principles Overcome physical barriers & eliminate system gaps Facilitate safe and continuous trips to regional destinations Accommodate a broad range of cyclist abilities and preferences Integrate &/or supplement existing & planned infrastructure Consider opportunities to enhance economic development 17

18 Current TPP RBTN Guiding Principles (cont.) Function as arteries to connect regional destinations & transit system year round Provide improved opportunities to increase bicycle mode share Connect to local, state & national bikeways Be equitably distributed throughout the region Consider regional priorities reflected in adopted bicycle plans Follow spacing guidelines to reflect established development and transportation patterns 18

19 19

20 Investment Direction Regional Priorities RBTN investment Proposed projects that enhance or complete new segments or connections of the RBTN Critical bicycle transportation links Closes a gap in RBTN Improves continuity/connections between jurisdictions (on or off RBTN) Removes a physical barrier (e.g., river, rail line, freeway) & can be on or off RBTN 20

21 Investment Direction Regional Priorities Other key prioritization factors Stand-alone pedestrian projects connecting to transit or regional job centers Safety enhancements Cost effectiveness for construction and/or maintenance Multimodal benefits incorporated in roadway projects Bicycle connections to transit Upgrades through existing facility reconstruction 21

22 What Changes are expected for Bike/Pedestrian chapter?

23 TPP Changes Incorporation of Studies Regional Bicycle Barriers Study Map of regional barriers Includes streams & rivers, major rail lines, freeways & expressways Map of ~ top 150 regional barrier crossing improvement locations (tiered) Map of major rivers with existing/planned bikeway crossings Update guidelines for regional investment 23

24 TPP Changes RBTN Updates Designated alignments within existing corridors will be added Other changes resulting from county/city meetings and other communications since last update RBTN Corridor and Alignment adjustments will be proposed New proposed RBTN map to show changes List of changes and planning rationale 24

25 TPP Changes Funding Sources Update Federal TAP conversion to Surface Transportation Program Block Grant Setaside Program (STPBG Set-aside) State Active Transportation grant program was established in trans. appropriations bill No funds were authorized through the legislation Framework for future state funds to be appropriated by legislature & administered through MnDOT 25

26 TPP Changes Other Text Revisions Bike/ped safety related to traffic speeds Add best practice references: Complete streets design & policy/planning guides Bike & ped data collection & applications Direction for local bikeways data updates for regional system inventory Information on improving pedestrian safety Reinforcement of the need for ADA compliance 26

27 Possible Work Plan Items RBTN Protected Bikeway Corridors Study Analysis of RBTN & local bikeway connections to regional transit system Analysis of pedestrian connections to regional transit system Updates to regional bicycle system inventory Regional pedestrian and bicycle crash data analysis 27
